> Anderson Cooper attacked -- punched in the head 10 times -- by Pro-Mubarak mob in Egypt. Luckily no one in the journalist's posse was seriously injured. Still -- watch your back, Coop!
> Following on the heels of his solo album, Bloc Party lead singer Kele Okereke is moving to NYC to write an "erotic memoir." Says Okereke, "We can expect some totally sexually charged material. We can expect some naming and shaming of celebrities as well. It's gonna be hot."
> Also writing a memoir (though we're guessing less erotically-themed)? Jane Lynch.
> Just in time for Valentine's Day: You can win a date with Justin Bieber just by buying a ticket to his (surely riveting) new movie, Never Say Never.
> Kathy Griffin is set to guest star as a comedian who is being sued for insulting audience members on CBS's The Defenders in March. Let's just hope it's as ... um ... good? as when she played a lesbian activist on Law and Order: SVU a while back.
